Dewayne Gallatin earned his nickname “King of Containers” while overseeing The Sibley Horticultural Center at Callaway Gardens.
His primary horticultural focus today is managing and developing future projects for private gardens and estates.
A close friend once suggested he enter a container gardening contest that ended up attracting over 1,000 entries. Little did he know a whole TV episode of PBS’s “The Southern Gardener” would be produced around his winning entry.
He earned Horticulture Associates Degrees in Landscape Design, Ornamental Production, and Commercial Turf Management from ABAC Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
He followed up those studies with internships at Chicago Botanic Garden and Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.
